Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom issued a statement following the earthquake, saying, "The Israeli people and government send their condolences to the Iranian people. The government and people of Israel feel the pain of this human tragedy facing the Iranian people, and despite all the differences of opinion, at these moments a mobilization of the entire international community is needed to help the injured and the families of the victims."
